Publisher's Summary

Echo of Silence: In a deep-sea station, Tazia Nerif has found her life's work as an engineer, keeping things running smoothly. But she wants nothing more than to break down the barrier of silence between her and her telekinetic Psy station commander.

Dorian: A changeling who can never shift lives a life of quiet frustration - until he learns how to let his leopard come out and play.

Partners in Persuasion: Still raw from being burned by a dominant female, wolf changeling Felix will never again risk being a plaything. But for dominant leopard Dezi, he's the most fascinating man she's ever met. She just has to convince this gun-shy wolf that he can trust the dangerous cat who wants to take a slow, sexy bite out of him.

Flirtation of Fate: Seven years ago, Kenji broke Garnet's heart. Now the wolf packmates have to investigate the shocking murder of one of their own. And the more Kenji sees of the woman Garnet has become, the deeper he begins to fall once more.

Great re-visit to the Psy-Changeling world

Genre: Single-author collection

Four stories set in Singh's wonderful Psy-Changeling world.

Echo of Silence is about Tazia Nerif, a human engineer on the deep sea station Alaris, and the station commander, Stefan. Tazi was shunned by her family because she chose not to marry someone from her village, instead focusing on her career. Stefan suffered a trauma as a child, before he started his Silence Protocol training, so he is allowed to assist at disaster sites. He asks Tazia if she wants to help on one during shore leave, and one thing leads to another...

Dorian is more of vignette than story. It feels more of an outtake from the full-length novel in which he is the hero.

Partners in Persuasion is about Felix, a submissive wolf horticulturist and Desiree, a dominant wolf soldier. Although he finds Desiree attractive, Felix is shy and reluctant to open himself up to heartbreak with a dominant again. Desiree must come to terms that, even though she is attracted to him, her wolf may never be able to accept a submissive as a mate rather than just a plaything.

Flirtation of Fate is about Kenji and Garnet, members of the Snowdancer Wolf Pack. They had history, everyone expected that they would end up mated, but 7 years ago he stood her up for her 21st birthday party and suddenly started acting like a manwhore. They haven't spent much time together, but that changes after their Alpha's mating ceremony. Garnet wants to find out why Kenji seemed to have a major personality shift, and Kenji just wants to spend a little time with the woman he had felt compelled to give up.

All of these stories are good, with well-developed characters. But of the 4, I enjoyed Echo of Silence and Partners in Persuasion most. I enjoyed the characters, and the plot lines are excellent. They also seem more unique parts of the Pay-Changeling world. That may be because the first involves a human-psy pair, and the hero of the other is not a muscle-bound alpha type of guy. At any rate, I enjoyed the entire experience.

Wonderful as always!!

Any additional comments?

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 5
As always Nalini writes stories that I don’t ever want to end. Then you had in the talented voice goddess Angela Dawe and I am Psy-Changeling heaven. It is no wonder that this is one of my most favorite series ever.
I loved these stories.
In Echo of Silence we get to follow Tazia and Stephan’s journey of falling in love during a trying time of the Psy race. Silence hasn’t fallen yet, but Tazia and Stephan can’t stop fate.

Dorian oh my goodness!!! Dorina’s story made me tear up more than once. Dorina has always been one of my favorite changeling characters so getting his back story made me and extremely happy girl.

Partners in Persuasion was such a cute story. I really enjoyed listening to Dezi and Feliz’s story. It was great to watch this couple struggle with wanting to be together and not knowing how to make it happen.
Flirtation of Fate I enjoyed Kenji and Garnet’s story. We have seen these two throughout the whole series so it was great to finally get to know them better. I enjoyed watching them work together to solve a murder.
Love this series. I can’t wait to see what Nalini has in store for us next!! And of course I will continue to listen to this series as long as Ms. Dawe is the narrator!

The kind of book you can listen to over and over

I always look forward to a Nalini Singh book because it never fails to engage my interest, just as this book has done. So far, I've had it for two days and have already listened to it twice.

Great stories!

Great stories but they should have been read after certain books, it kind of took away, when you knew things had happened before already. Still, they were too good to miss out on.

Fun little short from the Psy-Changeling world.

1. Echo of Silence: Tazia and Stefan, a sweet love story of two people who are lost and find what they needed in each other. Read by itself, it can stand on its own. 2 hrs 43 mins.

2. Dorian: Part of the story is when Dorian was a cub, and the hardship he endured because he couldn’t shift. Another part was when he was 14. Lastly when Dorian was with Ashaya, so I recommend reading after Hostage of Pleasure. 53 mins.

3. Partners in Persuasion: Felix and Desirae. Can a dominate and a submissive find love. Yes, yes they can. Read after Kiss of Snow. 2 hrs 55 mins.

4. Flirtation of Fate: A little murder mystery mixed with a lot of untold secrets are finally revealed in this story. Read after Kiss of Snow. 4 hrs and 35 mins.

I enjoyed all these stories. The characters are so strong. I felt the tears start several times. The reader brought all the characters to life. Thank you.

Love the these novellas & the whole series

Yes, I love these individual novellas and the whole darn Psy/Changeling series! I'm also following Singh's Archangel & Rock Kiss series, too. I'm so glad she was able to give us Kenji & Garnet's story. They so needed to be together. I really hope Alexei comes to Nalini with his story soon;-))

Very disappointed!!!

I didn't realize it was going to be a bunch of short stories. I just wanted to hear more about the stories. I think the author just had a bunch of thoughts that she needed write or maybe perhaps started a book and didn't have enough to ideals finish them.
disappointed!!!!
